Troops to Teachers Eases Shortage for Schools

After a career spent serving their country on the battlefield, some veterans return home to serve in a different way: as teachers, training the young minds of America’s future leaders and thinkers.

The skills and experiences veterans acquire during their service are incredibly useful within the classroom. Leadership, flexibility, adaptability, an understanding and appreciation of diversity — all help new teachers excel in their work. At a time when many schools are unable to find qualified educators, veterans are stepping up to fill in the gaps.
